FREE Ugly Dolls-inspired LD bundle ($61 value)


Heads up! LD has a great promotion going on right now where you can get the entire Little Monsters bundle for free.


The bundle includes 4 cut sets (SVG included), 4 graphic sets, 4 fonts, 1 printable set, and 1 paper pack. If you are shopping the site, just add the Little Monsters bundle to your cart and apply the coupon code: monsters when you are checking out. There is a minimum purchase requirement of $13 but it is a super deal considering that the value of the bundle is $61!

I was excited when I first saw these Ugly Dolls - inspired designs and I had to cut them out right away. The SVGs were simple and uncomplicated and the layers were easy to put together.

Here are some of the characters from the Little Monsters Party cut set that I have cut and assembled:




All the SVGs seen here were cut using my Silhouette Cameo and the SSDE software.

Cardstock Chewbacca (Happy Star Wars Day!)

I wasn't really planning on posting today but I've always loved LD's Star Wars-inspired SVGs and couldn't resist using a file that I haven't cut out with my Silhouette Cameo before.

I only had an hour to play before going out to lunch so I picked the design that didn't come with a lot of layers. Unlike some of the other characters that I had previously posted, Chewbacca only had 8 layers. After I eliminated the blush, I was left with 7 layers to cut out using 4 different colors of cardstock.

I usually like to take my time to cut and assemble the layers together but I was in a hurry this morning. I rushed through the process and was relieved when I managed to pick the papers, make the cutouts, glue/tape the layers together, and photograph the finished piece in just over an hour. Yay!! Guess the 4th was with me today. lol.
Hope you have a Happy Star Wars Day and May the 4th be with you too!

Timber! I've fallen for you...

So I have an easy card idea to share but strictly speaking, it's not really my card design. You see, as I was browsing through LD's Channel the Flannel collection, I came across a preview that gave me an idea...


See that cut file that I pointed out above? That alone can be its own card design!

Using Silhouette Studio (DS), I printed the sentiment and manually cut it out with a stitched square metal die. I cut the tree using my Silhouette Cameo and different colored cardstock and pieced them together with tape.

I like the clean and simple look of these cards but I really love how quickly they came together. I'm going to be busy with home and family stuff in the next couple of weeks and I could certainly use a fast project to get that crafting itch out of my system.

And speaking of busy, I gotta go....

Talk to you later!

Wood you be mine?

Have you seen the new collection that LD released yesterday? "We Go Together" is so cute I think I might have squealed a little when I saw it!


I adore the new designs and I cannot wait to play with them but today's post is not about them. I made these cards last week and didn't get around to putting them up on the blog and so here we go.

Of all the graphics that are in the "Channel the Flannel" collection, I think the one that stood out the most for me is the beaver. I mean, just look at that face. Isn't he a cutie?

Using Silhouette Studio DS, this is what I came up with:

I printed the card front and manually cut out with a rectangle metal die. The beaver was cut on different colored cardstock and pieced together with glue and foam tape.

Although I like the simple look of the card, I wondered if I could make the sentiment larger. After all, that is the point of the card, isn't it? To ask if he/she would be your Valentine?

So this is what I came up with:

Once again I printed out the card front and manually cut it out with a metal die while the beaver was cut and pieced together.

I have another card that I made from the Channel the Flannel collection to share with you but that'll have to wait until my next post.

Talk to you later!
